Competitive Bidding: “Buying Into” a Contract, Exiting a Contract, Meeting Capacity, and Other Important Issues
Presented by: Jeffrey Baird, Esq. with Brown & Fortunato and Mark Higley with VGM.
Now that competitive bidding has … unfortunately … been in place for several years, a number of legal issues have arisen and have been addressed by CMS. This webinar will discuss these legal issues. In particular, this webinar will:
Examine if the DME supplier can cease serving competitive bid patients if the supplier's business has exceeded the capacity stated in the supplier's bid package.
Look at the options the contract supplier has if it concludes that it simply cannot continue to serve patients on a profitable basis under the competitive bid contract.
Examine what the supplier must do if it discovers that it has not met the "physical location" requirements of a state.
Look at the requirements a contract supplier must follow in order to "carve out" a portion of its competitive bid contract.
Examine how a contract supplier should prepare a Corrective Action Plan when CMS threatens to terminate the competitive bid contract.
